This paper represents a study along the cutting edge of the current analysis of online social network in relation with the contents communicated among users. Twitter data is carefully selected around a fixed hash-tag in order to study the specified content in relation with other contents that users bring to connection. A separate network of hash-tags related (in tweets) is constructed for different days; the networks are analyzed within advanced Gephi package, providing several measures -degree, betweenness centrality, communities, as well as the longest path, by which the evolution of communication around specified concepts is quantified. Our study is absolutely in the current trend of analysis of online social networks that, going beyond mere topology, reveals relevant linguistic and social categories and their dynamics.
